Privacy Policy

Consumer Information Privacy Policy

ApplicantSafe/TenantSafe is a consumer reporting agency. It is required by the Fair

Credit Reporting Act, 15 U.S.C.  1681 et seq. (“FCRA”) to maintain the confidentiality of

all consumer information.

ApplicantSafe/TenantSafe obtains information on an individual consumer only upon the

request of a user who has a permissible purpose under the FCRA to request information

on that consumer in order to provide consumer reports. The FCRA requires a user for

employment purposes to certify to us that it has a permissible purpose for the report

and has obtained the written consent of the consumer to request information before

we can supply the requested information.1 The user must submit to reasonable audits

by us to confirm that it is, in fact, obtaining such consents. All users must certify that

they have a permissible purpose to request a report such as credit, insurance, and

renting an apartment. Our customers agree to keep your information confidential and


ApplicantSafe/TenantSafe does not maintain a database of consumer


Personal Information Disclosure, United States or overseas. We do not send

consumer information outside of the United States or its territories for any purpose

other than to deliver a report to an end user. Of course, if information is sought

from outside of the United States, the information is gathered in that country and

then transmitted to us here in the United States where it is treated as any other

consumer information.

Any information gathered on any consumer may only be provided to the user

authorized by the consumer or permitted by the FCRA or similar state law to receive the

information. We cannot and do not share, sell or distribute consumer information with

or to any third party other than the requesting party thereof. Any consumer, upon

proper identification, has the right under the FCRA to request us to furnish to the

consumer any and all information we may have on that consumer. The consumer has

the right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any information contained in the

consumer’s file.

However, we may be required, upon receipt of a court order to release the information

in civil litigation, or as otherwise required by law, to disclose information regarding a

consumer to law enforcement agencies.
